  • Brush natural teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, speak to your dentist if you are finding this difficult
  • If you have a dry mouth, your doctor, dentist or pharmacist can give you saliva replacement

  • Avoid sugary food or drink after brushing your teeth

  • Visit your dentist at least once every year and ask about fluoride varnish and high fluoride toothpaste
